January and February UpdatePosted : March 5th, 2012
We have had a much smaller AW team than usual this season and consequently just a handful of runners in the past couple of months. However, we start the year with our biggest ever team for the upcoming season and we will look to run a few of those on the AW in March before the start of the 2012 turf campaign.
Tappanappa has been our sole winner of the year so far, winning a 1m4f maiden at Lingfield Park in January. Though he has had problems that have limited him to just six starts to date, he has plenty of natural ability and was a close 6th in the Listed Winter Derby Trial on his latest start. He could well have a nice race in him this year.
Tartan Trip has been in good form so far this season, running well in defeat on three occasions. His next start will be in a £16,000, 1m2f handicap at Kempton Park on 7th March.
Perfect Mission won his maiden in December and has been a little unlucky not to get his head in front since, leading into the final furlong on his last two starts only to get narrowly beaten on both occasions. He looks capable of winning again soon.
